Description: "Challenging the stereotype of premodern China as an agricultural nation, this book examines the development of the maritime sector, maritime institutions, and sea power in the premodern era. Initially discussing topics related to China's exports, such as ship design and construction, goods produced for export, and investment in the maritime sector, the work goes on to consider the impact of maritime institutions. It then shows how China obtained technological, economic, and naval supremacy in Asian waters until the 18th century and discusses the reasons for its decline in the 19th century.
